Cooking More

I have not felt like cooking for some days but I seem to be better now and cooking more. I planned my menu from last shopping day until the 7th and am sticking to it for the most part. Some shuffling but that's easy in Plan to Eat.


My menu:

Saturday's pork chops were very good. I followed the recipe except I made 4 chops but kept the sauce the same. I wanted sauce to serve over noodles. And I put two chops in the freezer with plenty of sauce.

Sunday Thai Style Ground Beef also very good, also leftovers for brunch next day. I forgot leeks at the store so used a very big shallot instead. Served over rice with a side of broccoli.

I have a need to keep trying new recipes for macaroni and cheese. And I've found many good recipes. But I keep trying more. This one was good and made tons. I love gruyere cheese!

Also with this, I made maybe two thirds for dinner, put the rest in a foil pan unbaked and sent it directly to the freezer for the future. But still had leftovers for brunch. Planning is key for meals other than dinner and for dinner when no one (me) feels like cooking.


Leftovers for dinner the next day, we had choices, and always have stuff for a salad. I had a KitchenAid training call Wednesday from 2 to 4, so baked bread in the morning and needed easy for dinner.


New bread recipe and it was pretty and came out looking good.

Dinner was good and easy, I used pork loin chops for the meat since that's what I had and forgot a picture. It was a long day!


Another KItchenAid training call Thursday and have orange chicken on the menu. I personally am not sure about it. I am not big on fruit sauces on meat, but I liked the picture. It will be easy with potatoes and asparagus for sides.


I think I have to put on some make up now since people wanted to see me on Wednesday's call. Was not prepared for that!
